Vibrant Downtown Eugene

Improving Eugene's Downtown and Urban Parks

Exciting changes are happening downtown. We’ve seen new businesses opening, buildings filled with active uses, more people living downtown and more jobs — more than $250 million in public and private investments in our downtown. We are continuing to build on those successes with improvements to downtown infrastructure, public safety, social services and events.
